RSC Wales:New strategy for Welsh Higher Education

by Lis Parcell, 1 December 2009

WAG has published a new strategy for Welsh Higher Education entitled:

For our Future: the 21st Century Higher Education Strategy and Plan for Wales.

According to the overview “It builds upon and replaces Reaching Higher. The plan provides a response to the Jones Review of Higher Education in Wales which looked at the mission, purpose, role and funding of higher education in Wales. The strategy and plan will set out the strategic direction for HE, and the commitment to ensuring its contribution to social justice,
lifelong learning and a buoyant economy.” It also goes hand in hand with the broader skills strategy Skills that Work for Wales.
